Also called an "anthology," a book collaboration is created when a group of people each write a chapter that is published in a book as a collection of stories.
With our first one, Absolute Will, Jo did it as a fundraiser, she chose a very specific theme, and it worked out beautifully.
Let's walk through this example for a minute:
She wanted all the co-author collaborators to be WOMEN.
She wanted a total of 21 authors.
And she wanted them to have gone through a health crisis of some sort: mental health, emotional health, physical health.... some of the authors have dealt with addiction (of their own, or with a spouse), trauma, abuse, receiving devastating news during their pregnancy about their baby's health, losing a baby, losing a parent, some have been through scary autoimmune illnesses, and others have had physical injuries that almost stopped them in their tracks.
And ALL of them used their willpower to get through some of their most difficult life events.
Jo also wanted a global reach for such an inspirational book and was able to gather women from SEVEN different countries who all saw her vision and wanted to jump into this epic project!
Interested in doing something like this too?
Want to know more about what's involved?
To be in our collaborations, it means you write one inspirational chapter! If you've always thought about telling your powerful, inspirational story but are apprehensive about all the ins and outs of writing, dealing with the expenses, unforeseens, many many many hours of work (emphasis on "many" -- usually several hundred hours) and publishing a whole book on your own, being in a collaboration is a FANTASTIC opportunity to get your name on the cover of a book and share your story with the world.
We do charge a fee for this because of the amount of work that we put into creating our books - cover design, formatting, editing, working with authors one-on-one to get their story "just right," running a private facebook group for the authors to get to know each other and ask questions, creating graphics/quote cards that authors get to all use in their marketing efforts when the book is launching, figuring out keywords and categories, interviewing the authors for additional promo opportunities, and more!
You won't just submit your chapter and never hear back. We become family, sharing everything along the way, creating a true collaborative environment among the authors, and celebrating our achievement when the book goes live!
We also submit each book to at least one contest. Absolute Will and The Autoimmune Warrior's Healing Key were both AWARD-WINNING FINALISTS in the International Book Awards!
Check out all the quote cards we created, and the interviews Jo did for Absolute Will.
Every detail is taken care of to turn it into a published book on the Amazon global platform, so all you need to do is write and promote!
Jo offers one-on-one author coaching (specializing in helping with nonfiction health journey stories).
